Various Artists - Larga Vida Al.../Volumen Brutal (Tribute To Baron Rojo)
When I had heard of a tribute to BARON ROJO, one of the most influential Spanish bands, I was quite thrilled. When I received the promo CD, I was happy. When I looked at the back of the promo, I was pretty disappointed. Why? Well, 9 tracks on a double CD is what the fans will get, a grand total of five songs is what I am stranded with... How they expect to get a really competent and full review is beyond me, but what should I do?

So, like said before, BARON ROJO had influenced countless bands out there with their brand of excellent Melodic Power Metal, which many of the best Spanish acts have taken on on this compilation. I could only hear the efforts of AZRAEL, LUJURIA (I just love their rendition of "Larga Vida Al Rock & Roll"!), KOMA, BOIKOT and EASY RIDER, which cover a quite wide spectrum style-wise and do a really good job with it.

So the full double CD should be a really good tribute to a band that for a change really deserves it, but with 5 songs only, I am sorry, don't expect a full review from me... (Online January 11, 2002)
